Notes and Tips

Iris got patched on the week of 9/10 where the developers-

  • Clarified Iris' "Watch and Learn" description to clarify that stacks of Intellect cannot be copied.
  • Fixed the damage typing of Iris' Eyes of the Beholder to be Dark at all times. It was doing Spirit damage at times. Silly Iris...
